Nishan Disanayake

About The Teacher

Born into a Theravada Buddhist family in Sri Lanka, Nishan has practiced meditation since the age of 16 (in 1998), learning through monasteries, meditation groups, and self-study. Nishan first began teaching meditation in 2004 at a primary school and a temple, then by hosting a weekly group at his home. He currently works in Thailand, offering his wisdom at Healing Centers, Yoga Teacher Training Courses and to individuals.

Over the years he has practiced all the main forms of Theravada Buddhist meditations, focusing on Metta (Unconditional Love) and Vipassana (Insight) practices. Through his practice of inner awareness, he gained an increased awareness of other people's mind states which enables him to help people see and heal their own emotional pains.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To reconnect with my inner self, found ground through the movement of my body and breath. Awake. Jane
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
